IDENT2020: #THE21

Welcome to the UK’s only annual arts festival which ONLY platforms Black performers. Last year’s event, which was also funded by the City of Culture Trust, took place at Warwick Arts Centre.

This year IDENT is streamed via YouTube on 21.12.20 – the shortest day of the year and the night upon which the Christmas Star (or the ‘Great Conjunction’ of Saturn and Jupiter) will be visible for the first time in 800 years.

The digital festival features dance, photography, spoken word, gospel music, opera, comedy, soliloquies, poetry, soul music and more. The aim of the festival remains the same: the celebration, rather than appropriation, of Black talent, for the benefit and enjoyment of all.
